A Great Week

Monday- ran 3 miles
Tuesday- Jillian video- Yoga Meltdown level 1
Wednesday- ran 6 miles
Thursday- pilates barre class (at the Y, and amazing!), ran 4 miles
Friday- Sea World trip with the kids- my phone's pedometer said that we walked 3.5 miles
Saturday- ran 7.5 miles
Sunday-walked with family- 20 mins

A very good week. I wish that the logistics would fall into place for this to happen every week! In between was a week of moderate workouts, after I heard that there were no findings on my heart tests.

Oct 19-25

Thurs - 40 min hilly walk

Still working on adding days to this list!  This week isn't looking too promising so far . . . have had a sick 5 yr old for the last two days, which has kept my hands full.

Oct 12-18

One activity to report - a 40 min hilly walk pushing a stroller.  My first goal is to increase this activity to 2x/wk.

My husband also surprised me by announcing he wanted to go back on Weight Watchers.  I despise dieting and didn't have a great week.  But tracking my eating habits is (unfortunately) good for me, so I'm pressing forward.  I have healthful snacks on hand this week to help me avoid temptation.

Saturday- ran 6.5 miles (slowly)

On Tues, I began having some weird heart palpitations. Went to the Dr. and they did an EKG, blood test, and chest x-ray to rule out anything bad. Said it was stress/ anxiety most likely. Life has been crazy, but it has been crazier at other points. I think it might have to do with some hormonal fluctuations too. They put no restrictions on my activity, so I did go to the Y again on Saturday to run (slower though). I felt better on Saturday than any other day, so it kind of confirms that exercising really does help me regulate stress.

Checking in Again

Ladies, you remind me of the importance of keeping a workout log.  I'm going to rededicate myself to one - otherwise, the "baby weight" will become permanent weight (no thank you!)

Looking forward to posting my workouts for this week . . .
